0703230112Dessert is tiramisu, blanc manger and caramel ice-cream.

One of those impossible-to-book restaurants. Yet to my utter disappointment, the food is nothing special. Not bad or anything but considering the price and the hassle of booking, that is not one dish that really impresses. Also there is only one toilet for both men and women...^^;;

Comments:

The bread was good, but I can have very good simple toasted bread at home! ^^;;; A friend of mine went for dinner at this place and said dinner is twice as expensive and no better than lunch...

Oh that is a shame that you went through so much trouble to book in advance but they ended up no good...

'simple toast bread'....^^;;; (imagine dipping that on olive oil). Yeah often these famous hard-to-book restaurants are a let down, maybe you need to try the dinner (bigger portion at least perhaps?). Joan and I just came back from a weekend get away at New York (Fri-Tuesday), and we tried as many 'famous restaurants' as we can (reserved weeks ahead), it's mostly misses (one hit though!)
